OSW: The Xquizzyt1 Mix, Volume 4 – 70’s Slow Jams


Bow down to Xquizzyt1
as she throws it down again. The title tells it all:

Old
School Wednesday: The Xquizzyt1 Mix, Volume 4 – Slow Jams from the 70s

01 – Billy Paul – Me And Mrs. Jones
02 – Commodores – Zoom
03 – Confunkshun – Straight From The Heart
04 – Earth Wind and Fire – Reasons
05 – Enchantment – Gloria
06 – Friends Of Distinction – Going In Circles
07 – Gap Band – Yearning For Your Love
08 – Hall & Oates – Sarah Smile
09 – Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes – Hope That We Can Get Together Soon
10 – Angela Bofill – I Try
11 – Isley Brothers – Don’t Say Goodnight
12 – Main Ingredient – I’m So Proud
13 – Manhattans – There’s No Me Without You
14 – Marvin Gaye – Come Live With Me Angel
15 – Norman Connors – You Are My Starship
16 – O’Jays – You Got Your Hooks in Me
17 – Rose Royce – I Wanna Get Next To You
18 – Keni Burke – Risin’ To The Top
19 – Teddy Pendergrass – My Latest Greatest Inspiration

When I was growing up,
– Billy Paul was played constantly by my mother;
– Yearning For Your Love came out when I was going through "changes"
(I’m sure the peanut gallery will get a kick outta that);
– Norman Connors was played constantly;
– Rose Royce’s cut was always played at the drive-thru car wash;

I don’t know about you, but I am diggin’ this. Dim the lights, light a candle, sway back and forth. However, we are not responsible
if you do this at work.

    Man, Chica – I had the arby up for 10 minutes and you were on it! I love it!
    KB, all you had to do was let a brotha know…. ya know?
    Nikki…when I did converting this last night I was having a field day, and thinking, “man, she just don’t stop, does she?” *wipes brow*

  5. 27 April 2005 at 07:27

    I’m gonna love playing this today…it’s raining outside, I have a headache. These jams are just what the doctor ordered. Lovin’ track #1. :)

  6. 27 April 2005 at 07:47

    EJ!!! Thank you!!! Send me the track listing to my job… so I can recreate the playlist and listen… since they got hip to radioblog at work. =)
    *swaying with a lit match* LOL (is it wrong to vibe off your own mix???) LOL

  7. 27 April 2005 at 10:24

    I humbly succumb to the fierceness that is this arby. OH. MY. LORD. EVERY. TRACK. IS. STELLAR. OK?!!!
    X & EJ – this jawn is the truth, and I’m addicted like a crackhead.
    < shakin & feenin’ > so when did y’all say you’re gonna collab again? lol

  8. 27 April 2005 at 10:51

    Oh, man, ya’ll just keep doing it. This is the ish. X, you the woman. And Me and Mrs. Jones. Yes, lawd! You Got Your Hooks in Me. I can’t take it. I’m in 70s heaven.

  9. 27 April 2005 at 12:13

    ..see you all are trying to have me get absolutely NOTHING done at work today..LOL
    This list is HOT!!

  10. 27 April 2005 at 12:14

    Lol…I remember my cousin in-law singing ‘I’m so Proud’ to my cousin at their wedding. You would have thought he was a superstar the way he got into it. It was beautiful.
    Just seeing Angela Bofil ‘I try’ on your list makes me wanna cry. That was my official break up song in the 80’s and early 90’s. I saw her in concert once and it was awful. She sang ‘I Try’ and started crying. Black mascara ran down her face making her look hideous. The entire audience was uneasy and she disappeared after that.
    I’m sure I have a story for every title on your list. I’m listening to Sarah Smile now. *sigh*…memories…thanks EJ.

  11. 27 April 2005 at 13:19

    How?! How?! On.earth.did.i.forget.about.OSW!!!!!
    I’ve dimmed the lights and lit the candles…i’m jammin’ to the 70s! man I’m sooooooooooooooo glad I played hookie today! too bad the man went to work! *LoL*
    This is great y’all!

  12. 27 April 2005 at 13:41

    Pure greatness! I’m loving your mix man. Truly! :)

  13. 27 April 2005 at 16:57

    My mama and dem’s music! I could listen to “Zoom” ALL.DAY.LONG. By the time “Don’t Say Goodnight” came on the hi-fi stereo I had to go to bed ’cause the grown folks were about to handle their bidness. Umph!

  14. 27 April 2005 at 17:17

    Yearning For Your Love is my JAM!
    *steals songs for wedding CD*

  15. 27 April 2005 at 17:44

    so are u saying that we can’t sway at work??
    …too late!

  16. 27 April 2005 at 19:52

    dude…you are the master

  17. 27 April 2005 at 20:21

    Will, you know it’s your turn next week, right? RIGHT.
    X and Saga I’ve been swaying all day….
    Yolie, do you know that the amount of requests you have in constitutes an OSW? I’m just sayin’…
    Kel, you know I had to represent!
    Cheryl, I can only imagine. I was trying to type all of it up last night, and just decided to stop typing it all and just groove. Still laughing about the mascara!
    Golden, next Wednesday at midnight I’m straight knockin’ at your door.
    Berry, you are absolutely hilarious.
    Sheron – you know I gotchu, lady!
    Dayrell, Kent, and Sun…welcome to OSW. I know you’re havin’ a ball.

    This mix was too hot for me to play at work, had to wait til’ I made it to da crib!
    (hey, keep it between us, but I may have shed a tear just reading this playlist)

  19. 28 April 2005 at 01:11

    Completely loving every track!

  20. 28 April 2005 at 14:07

    OK, obviously I have too much time on my hand and an overactive imagination but why do I get a picture of The OSW Master (EJ) training his apprentices in the ways of the groove? LOL. Great job as always :)

  21. 28 April 2005 at 15:57

    Man, memory lane never looked so good brah. Very exceptional job on this list. there are some incredible selections in this list, not to mention each song played conjures up some form of distant memory. I can’t compliment you enough dawg.

  22. 29 April 2005 at 12:28

    Excellent list as usual EJ!

  23. 3 May 2005 at 23:23

    You have to get the Smooth Grooves collection. It has some of the best old school slow jams.
